Introduction:-

Vajrasana is a sitting pose of Yoga which has been derived from the Sanskrit word vajra which means ‘thunderbolt’ or ‘diamond’. It is a kneeling position sitting on heals. It looks similar as the praying pose of Muslims. The practitioner will seem to sit in a normal kneel pose; but the heals will be focused. There is one more form of Vajrasana which is called “Supta-Vajrasana“. It is just about to bend backward.

How to perform Vajrasana:-

Why is it specialist in Digestion?

You all must be wondering why we wrote ‘digestion’ in the topic. Actually, Vajrasana is mainly meant for the treatment of digestion related problems only. After having meals, you should perform this. It gives best results. The timing and the straightness depend on your capability itself. Over-exertion of power can even worsen the condition. So, take care and live well!
